How To Convert XSL-FO to PDF?

XSL-FO contains both data and layout, however to understand how XSLFO is converted to PDF, let’s take a look at the entire process of going from data to output. Since XML contains primarily only data, a layout will have to be designed. This layout (also known as a template) uses the XSL-FO language to describe how data will be presented into a human readable format

Templates may also contain rules and conditions for  generating output, as well as other elements such as fields and tables. Once you have designed your template, you can then use the MHC API to generate PDF, Word or even interactive HTML5 documents.
